We had just finished lunch, which somehow ended in a discussion of Yogi Berra and his famous quotes. I pulled up a few on my phone to read and we wondered aloud whether his words were intentionally funny or slyly philosophical. I loved watching the expressions on the boys faces as they pondered, "When you arrive at a fork in the road, take it." or "The future ain't what it used to be." Sometimes they cracked a smile, other times their heads cocked as they considered the meaning of the words.
As we were loading our plates into the dishwasher, Nico unwittingly came up with this Yogi-like gem: "It's such a waste of a beautiful day when it rains." I pointed out the silly and the sublime about his comment and we laughed and repeated it over and over to let it sink in.
To a boy who is itching to get outside and try out the efficiency of several battle poses for his newly-minted Star Wars character, it is a waste of a beautiful day.
I had taken this photo only an hour before to enter in the Beautiful Black and White challenge at I Heart Faces. I guess we were all thinking about how the rain was affecting our day.... but, for me it was good. (Don't tell him I said that. :-) )
